Brandon League of Fine Arts

About Us

The purpose of the Brandon League of Fine Arts is to inspire interest in the arts through educational programs, to promote advancement of members by providing opportunities to exhibit their work, and to serve the community through enrichment of the cultural climate.

In 1959, a group of Brandon area artists and art lovers organized to support and encourage the cultural life of the greater Brandon area, these dedicated men and women formed an organization called the Brandon Area Art Center, but changed its name to the Brandon League of Fine Arts (BLFA) in 1977.

In the 1980s, the scope of activities and events changed and expanded to reflect the ever-evolving interests of League members. In addition to monthly meetings and fine art demonstrations, noteworthy activities included a student scholarship, an annual Members’ Show, Artworks Show, and a national Square Off competition.

In 2023, the BLFA established a new collaboration with a highly creative and environmentally-conscience business and 5013c, Creative Junk Therapy. This location really helps the League spread our wings with more space and a wider audience.

General Membership meetings are held at Creative Junk Therapy, 776 West Lumsden Road, Brandon, FL 33511 on the 3rd Monday of the month at 6:30 pm. Visitors are always welcome. Click here to open a membership form in a new window, then download or print.
